Christmas at Lilly House

November 10, 2012-January 6, 2013

American Christmas decorations demonstrate both continuity and change in delightful combination from colonial times to the present. Christmas at Lilly House uses the American country house setting to explore the decorative ideas of the 1930s and 1940s, offering an opportunity to see the ways that familiar motifs such as trees, wreaths, and evergreens were enlivened with refreshing touches of newer fashions.
